Save St Germans Church from proposed closure

A proposal to close St Germans Church, Cornwall has been put forward by St Germans Group Parish PCC and the current priest-in-charge, Revd A. Johnston. As a building with 1000 years of worship to its name and with its unique historical and architectural significance which is renowned both nationally and internationally, we believe it should be preserved in ALL its capacities for future generations. We believe that there is currently much untapped potential to raise the income of the church to a level that would ensure its proper maintenance as has always been the case in previous years. We, the undersigned, are against the proposal from the priest-in-charge, Revd A Johnston and the current PCC of St Germans Group Parish to close St Germans Church.

    5 years ago Comments: There is a misconception that placing the church in the hands of the Conservation Trust means that nothing will change in the church and it will be maintained for future generations. That may be the case but the big change is that it will no longer be a church where regular worship can take place and a Christian community can grow. We are told that baptisms, weddings and funerals may still take place plus six services a year. My understanding is that the six services include weddings, funerals and baptisms and as four funerals have already been held this year this does not leave much scope for regular worship. Also a wedding will cost in the region of £1000 by the time each interested party has been paid. Whatever the truth of the situation is the church will still not be a vital part of the village once placed with the CCT. When changes are made I am sure that there will be a steady return to regular worship at the church.
